Statues in Bangkok

At 39.5 cm, this piece of art is exquisite. But it is not in any museum. It was impounded by a Samut Prakan police station and is now sitting in some storage place in another province. I wonder what's the story.

There are five rows of smaller Buddhas forming the base. 11 statues on the lowest base and one fewer in each successive steps. How many smaller Buddhas make up the base? What if the height of the entire work is doubled by keeping the height of the largest Buddha and increasing the height of the base - how many small Buddha statues are needed on the lowest step? 

Location | Siam Paragon, Bangkok
